More About the Author
Philip Johnson is an Australian author and theologian. He divides his time between writing and supervising students undertaking theological studies. He has had the "writer's bug" since childhood, and enjoys reading just as much as writing. He has a range of avocational interests in films, is a lifelong fan of the BBC science-fiction show Doctor Who, and of authors such as John Le Carre, J.R.R.Tolkien, C.S.Lewis, Arthur Conan Doyle, and Herge.
He is a graduate of the University of Sydney (BA & BD), and of the Australian College of Theology (MTh). He also studied (by audit only) Animal Law in 2005 at the University of NSW. He has been a guest lecturer at Morling College in apologetics and alternative religious movements. He has co-written several books with Ross Clifford, and one also with John Drane with books published in Australia, England and the United States of America. He has contributed chapters to other books including Encountering New Religious Movements (Kregel 2004), Pop! Goes the Witch (Disinformation, 2004), and Tough-Minded Christianity (B & H Academic, 2008). He has written over 100 articles in various Australian periodicals and also been published in peer-review journals such as Australian Religion Studies Review, Lutheran Theological Journal, and Missiology. He is currently working on two books about animals and Christianity.
Philip has an author blog called Animals Matter to God, and a book-blog for The Cross Is Not Enough
